Swan 53 JANE for sale with Yeoman Yachts
Swan 53 for sale:


One simply runs out of positive accolades to describe this Swan 53. There is nothing like her anywhere in the world, on or off the brokerage market.

The previous owner completed a major refit over the past few years which is well documented in the following description. When JANE, then ZOUK, came onto the brokerage market in 2020 she sold within minutes of hitting the press and with another full price back-up offer the same day. The present owner, a well renown boat yard owner, then added new sails, a custom stall shower forward and a few other items.

I don’t want to use the description “as new” but surely JANE gets as close to this description as possible. A change of the owner’s plans is allowing this incredible yacht to become available again.

Run, don’t walk, to see this Swan. You will not be disappointed.

To satisfy CA yacht brokerage laws, this Swan 53, JANE, is subject to an exclusive listing agreement with Fraser Yachts located in San Diego and is not offered for sale by Yeoman Yachts LLC. Yeoman Yachts LLC is merely providing this information in an effort to represent you as a buyer in the purchase of this vessel. Yeoman Yachts sold this Swan to the existing owner.
